Tidal (Watersong)

I am reviewing the urban fantasy Tidal (Watersong) by Amanda Hocking which is a very good book that I bought on kindle. The theme to this story is sirens which are similar to mermaids except they exude a beautiful song that hypnotizes sailors so they are lured into wrecking their ships on rocks. 247 more words

Review - Life

Life, Richard Fortey

This isn’t my favourite of Fortey’s books, possibly because I’ve read similar types of books by other writers before, so he isn’t bringing me a new subject I don’t expect to like in the same way as he was in his books about geology, or a key passion of his as in his book about trilobites (though trilobites have their place here, too, as you’d expect with Fortey). 171 more words
